Potatoes aren't considered paleo by many people because they contain a high amount of starch and carbohydrates.

I believe potatoes and pasta are considered complex carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates are things like table sugar, fruits, etc.

Potatoes have got starch and they are carbohydrates, you need carbohydrates because they provide energy that you will use throughout the day. Also because they are soo good and you can't get enough of them so many choices French fries , crisps , Jacket potatoes etc.

Obviously mashed potatoes do not make a person fat. There can be many factors including genetics, overall diet and exercise. However, potatoes do contain a lot of carbohydrates which means that people who eat a lot of mashed potatoes can have excess carbohydrates causing them to store the energy which they do not use throughout the day into fat.

No. Carbohydrates are starchy foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, corn etc. Meats are not carbohydrates.

Baby red potatoes are high in carbohydrates because they are potatoes. Potatoes are a starch that turns into simple sugars.
